I think we have it wrong... From what I have observed this spring natural predators are on the rise. I cannot count the number of coyotes that came into my [HEN] yelping. Also called up 3 bobcats. I think they are taking a toll on our hens.

I'd rather have people trying to kill their limit than people who don't give a hoot about limits or seasons or buying a license. I know a guy who hunted before season and then when season opened one of his friends and another guy went out and killed 8 toms in a row out of a flock. The "it's my land, I can kill what I want" mindset kills me...

I think the "new breed" are the self pro-claimed turkey killers, who always have a tag in their vest. In case you wonder what I mean check out the "silence" thread.
One of the biggest problems with hunting today.
I am glad I am not the only one whose skin it gets under.

I deleted my post. Most wont know what Im talking about. It really bothers me to see a person just post a statement like that. Ive worked as a volunteer for over 30 yrs. with the NWTF, and its like a slap in the face. To see how long it took, to get the birds we have and than say that. Im done on this topic.

If you will study the Harvest Report,you will see that things are changin.The Jake numbers are way down,use to be about 40 percent or so.That shows that hunters are taking Toms over Jakes.Looks like the shooting Jakes raggin is workin LoL.

I also have been a NWTF volunteer in the past for about 12yrs. Still a member prolly always will be....although I don't like the direction they are going in I still respect what they have done with wild turkey restoration..I tell everyone I kno who turkey hunts they should be a member. I consider it to be one of, if not the greatest restoration effort ever!!!!

I can take criticism for my views just fine, but take offense to being called a poacher(wild hogs are a completely different story ) My old man hunted with me a lot this season. Both of us are legally licensed hunters. Now I'm not one to ever brag about the number of longbeards I kill, but of those 8 legal tags, we filled 7 of those in the South Cherokee, two of which were killed the final week of season. Everyone was tagged and checked in, either at the Hiawasse Corner Market in Polk county or online. I also killed a gobbler at Chuck Swan, which was a bonus turkey. You were wise to delete your post, because there may be some out there who are "as" serious a turkey hunter as myself, but I assure you, there is nobody out there "more" serious about it then myself ;\) As for fall turkey hunting, my kin, going back over 150 years in Florida, have had a freshly killed, fried wild turkey on the table every Thanksgiving for as many years. That "Cracker" tradition will continue no matter what state I may reside in.
